Can Harry Styles Save Rock & Roll?

If you’re a One Direction fan or say, under the age of 18, you’ve probably listened to Harry Styles debut album at least a couple hundred times since it dropped on Friday. For three full days, you’ve been able to sit with a record of tunes defining what our fave Directioner is all about outside of… More »


Album Review: Tyler Glenn – ‘Excommunication’

Tyler Glenn is one of those people who you can just turn their records on and find some guidance, which is probably why he has always been one of my favorite people in music. His passion, his talent and his honesty have always made me gravitate towards him as he understands all too well what… More »


Album Review: Daya – ‘Sit Still, Look Pretty’

In the music industry, there’s a difference between hype and excitement. Hype is guaranteed by the press but without excitement, all of that publicity might as well be for nothing. For pop songstress, Daya, the excitement has always been there from the very beginning. After a whirlwind year, the time has come for the soon-to-be… More »



Album Review: Banks – ‘The Altar’

When Banks first exploded onto the scene in late 2013, fans were hooked on the singer’s ethereal dark-pop & R&B sound with tell-tale lyrics that by the time her debut full-length, Goddess, was released a year later, the excitement of having a collection of empowering anthems was palpable throughout the blogosphere. Now, the singer returns… More »


Album Review: Broods – ‘Conscious’

I first fell in love with New Zealand indie-pop sibling duo, Broods – comprised of Georgia and Caleb Nott – during a massive blizzard in early 2015. Holed up in my Brooklyn apartment, I fired up Spotify and fell madly in love with their 2014 debut, Evergreen. Since then, it’s been a rocky road for… More »


Album Review: Garbage – ‘Strange Little Birds’

Obsessions: They may be ugly and rip our souls wide open but chances are, they never sounded this good. If you’re a Garbage fan, you’ve probably turned to them in times of need – from pain to judgement to feeling unworthy – as they’ve proven time after time that they understand us and are willing… More »



Album Review: Against The Current – ‘In Our Bones’

Believe it or not, I like when I’m proven wrong about certain things – one of those being bands I unwittingly write off as just another pop/rock band as I honestly have no knowledge (or typical interest) of the Warped Tour scene – save for PVRIS, Paramore and even Hey Monday back in the day….

Album Review: LIGHTS – ‘Midnight Machines’

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I honestly cannot think of another artist who takes the time to craft special acoustic companion albums for each of their releases. LIGHTS has been on the acoustic bandwagon since 2010 after releasing an acoustic EP for her debut record, The Listening, then again in 2013 for her sophomore… More »


Album Review: The 1975 – ‘I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It’

My first impression upon listening to The 1975 was that they meant business. It was early 2013 and their song, “Sex,” was just starting to garner a ton of buzz here in the US. That song, distinct from most of their work, was really rough around the edges and ultimately catapulted them into indie madness… More »



Review: The Maine’s ‘Black and White’

So you know how at the end of every year one is compelled to make a slideshow montage and picking the song to go with it is just ALWAYS SO HARD? It will never be…
